Sonali Bendre's latest picture has her wearing a wig
Sonali Bendre is recuperating from cancer, which had metastized, in New York. A short while ago, she shared a picture of her wearing a wig. The actress posted the picture with an uplifting message, and this only shows her determination to defeat the beast. In the post, Sonali wrote: Only you know what would make you feel good. And, we completely agree.
Bendre, who has lost her hair due to cancer, has shared a video on Instagram wherein she is seen wearing a wig along with her 'bald and beautiful' look. She captioned the video as "Vanity is my favorite sin - Al Pacino". She further shared an uplifting message, saying, "It's important to do what makes you happy". Here's a look at her Instagram post.
"Vanity is my favourite sin." - Al Pacino Well, it might not be my all-time favourite sin (that would be gluttony 😋), but who doesn't like looking good? The way we look has a profound psychological impact on us... A little vanity here and there does no one any harm. It's important to do what makes you happy, even if it's something as simple as wearing a wig, bright red lipstick, high heels.... All that white noise doesn't make a difference in the larger picture. No one can tell you what's right or wrong for you. When I was testing out the wigs, I had a brief moment of self-doubt... "Am I vain for wanting to look good?" As part of the entertainment industry, you're always expected to look good... Maybe that has been ingrained in me? But then I gave it a thought and I realized I like looking good for me. If I'm in the mood to wear a scarf, I will. If I want to walk around bald and free, I will. Only you know what would make you feel good, and what works best for you. So take every opportunity you can to #SwitchOnTheSunshine. #OneDayAtATime 🙏🌞 Thank you @priyankachopra for connecting me with the amazing @bokheehair, who created my new look.
Bendre has a great bond with her fans and chose to share the news of her disease on her social media account. She shared an emotional message saying, "I'm taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me." She also thanked everyone around for being her support during this crucial time.
Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them. There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful. I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.
